Holy Cow! There Are Still Two Electra's Here!

Sun Feb 10, 2002 4:59 am

Wow!!!...I just found something out.

Working here during the day which is really unusual for me. Anyway I was looking out the wind this morning and noticed the door to the Reeve Hanger was open. I notice that one of Air Cargo Expresses aircraft being pulled into the barn. Nothing too unusual there, figure there renting the space to work on the aircraft since they don't have there own hanger here.

Anyway the sun came up and just a few minutes ago I looked over and saw something that I thought had went away two Christmases ago. There was the tail of a Reeve Electra!!! Anyway After I got a look at another angle and thought to myself, "I don't remember those things being that long. Then I realised that there were two of them sitting out on the ramp.

That accounts for the other two Reeve Electras, I had heard previously that they had ended up in Africa like the two jets. I know the third Electra 68R ended up in Canada with airspray.

Anyway they are both still in full colors and look to be well. Just nice to see.

Wow, that is news Shawn! Are they going to use them on charters or what?

I know Reeve is still open for charters or cargo, at least thats what I have heard from other guys.

See if you can find out if they are going to fly them or when do they fly them? Daily?

Great that you spotted them!

Well, are they going to start flying them? If so, I would lie to capture one of those electra's on film if possible!
